Living with violence
violence; emotional; physical; sexual; bullying; harassment; religious;
We live in a world where for most people violence is part of our everyday lives. We see violence on the news, in the movies, or on TV. We read about it and we all suffer the consequences of it when our society makes our lives more complicated in order to keep us safe.
Violence is anything that is intentionally done to make someone feel afraid, controlled or powerless; it is more than just physical violence.
But what if violence is part of your own life? You could be living with a violent parent, or another violent adult in the family, or a violent brother or sister, or with a violent partner.
